All India Football Federation (AIFF) has condoled the demise of former Indian midfielder Abdul Latif.
Latif passed away in Guwahati following a heart ailment.
Latif was a part of India's 1970 bronze medal-winning Bangkok Asian Games squad. He had made his international debut for India against Burma in the Asia Cup Qualifier in 1968 and he went on to represent India in four matches.
He represented India in three tournaments - the Asia Cup Qualifier in 1968 in Rangoon, currently Yangon, and the 1969 Merdeka Cup in Kuala Lumpur, and the 1970 Asian Games in Bangkok.
"It is sad to hear that Mr Abdul Latif is no more. His contribution to Indian Football will never be forgotten. I share the grief," AIFF president Praful Patel said in an official statement.
